MT4’s complete technical analysis package with over 50 built-in indicators and charting tools helps to keep you on top of market trends using multiple accounts. You can execute trades manually or with preloaded indicators and automated robot trading strategies (or Expert Advisors). Alternatively, MT4’s highly customisable, advanced software allows you to create your own trading strategies using its unique MQL4 programming language. Take advantage of MT4’s one-click functionality to make sure your trades are executed fast, every time.
MetaTrader 4 also offers VPS (Virtual Private Server) technology which simulates a standard physical server via cloud technology. The major benefit of VPS to traders is in providing continuous 24hr operation of trading terminals, where delay caused by connectivity problems can prove disastrous.The VPS enables traders to access their trading system from anywhere across the globe. As long as you have an internet connection, you can maintain control over your positions and trading account.

Here is the scale that we use for trading lot sizes on MetaTrader:
0.01 lots = 1,000 units of base currency (or dollars) Our “micro” lot size.
0.10 lots = 10,000 units of base currency (or dollars) Our “mini” lot size.
1.00 lots = 100,000 units of base currency (or dollars) Our “standard” lot size.
**Please note that trading in lot sizes that are not shown in the scale above is possible. An example would be to open a lot position of 0.60 (60,000 units), an 8.00 lot position (800,000 units), or even a 3.20 lot position (320,000 units). Please email us with any scale questions: email@example.com
**Also, note that other brokers may use a different scale to trade certain size lots. For instance, another broker may show 1.00 lots on a mini account is 10,000 units
